Abstract

The last decade has witnessed an intense increase in research in the area of frustrated Lewis pairs (FLP). This conceptually simple idea has demonstrated to be extremely fruitful from a synthetic point of view. In fact, FLP chemistry has been able to offer complementary approaches to transformations traditionally in the realm of metal catalysis. This Cluster contains a series of articles that present the most recent achievements in this field, including new concepts and applications.
